Usually I would say the palettes are the most exciting part of a new collection but in this instance I’m very swayed by the new selection of lipsticks coming from Clarins for Spring 2013. Not only do they have a blackberry and liquorice scent and flavour (which is quite daring, I think) but the Rouge Eclat collection has anti-ageing, collagen boosting ingredients as well as mimosa, jojoba and sunflower waxes. It comes in fifteen shades and the lipsticks cost £18.50 each. 

The Limited Edition Eye Quartet Mineral Palette Violette above is embossed with an iris flower and give me that violet shade right now!! It will cost £30.

The Limited Edition Face & Blush Powder, £30, isn’t as strong visually this year as previous years I don’t think but none the less, gives skin a radiance veil and if you focus on the pink and coral stream, doubles as a good neutral blush. 

Possibly my absolute favourite thing is this Gloss Prodige in Water Lily, £15.50 (below) and is the gloss that anyone can wear because of its univerally flattering shade (there is a more pinky version as well. It’s also got the blackberry/liquorice flavour and scent. I’ll get the lipsticks swatched as soon as I can. You’ll see this range from January.
